So Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo has been voted the Greatest Film of All Time in Sight & Sound magazine's prestigious once a-decade poll of international film critics, academics and writers.
I had a chat with editor Nick James about the film and why it has bumped Citizen Kane off top spot after all these years.
Here's the Top 10:
- Vertigo - 1958, director Alfred Hitchcock
- Citizen Kane - 1941, director Orson Wells
- Tokyo Story - 1953, director Yasujiro Ozu
- La Regle Du Jeu (The Rules of the Game) - 1939, director Jean Renoir
- Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans - 1927, director Murnau
- 2001: A Space Odyssey - 1968, director Stanley Kubrick
- The Searchers - 1956, director John Ford
- Man with a Movie Camera - 1929, director Dziga Vertou
- The Passion of Joan of Arc - 1927, director Carl Theodor Dreyer
- 8 1/2 - 1963, director Federico Fellini
